A brand new feting experience is on the cards for Bajans in October.


An all-inclusive party and staycation package program called Liv The Weekend is set for next month. With a starting price of around $596 BBD, many people will get to enjoy what has been billed as "the ultimate weekend getaway experience" from October 16 to 18.

Promoters, Nouvelle Vie, have teamed with the Ocean Group of Hotels to give Bajans an exciting mix of the staycation experience mixed with various parties and events all with the proper adherence to COVID-19 rules and regulations. 

Speaking at a press conference held at Ocean Two Resort, Marketing and Communications Officer for Nouvelle Vie, De Carla Applewhaite, says Bajans can look forward to something new and exciting with this venture.

"We (Bajans) say we live where you vacation all the time but do we always get to enjoy it? I think we are all tired of looking at the same walls and we need a vacation. So Liv The Weekend has taken the whole concept of the weekend getaway and allowed Bajans to come to a fantastic resort with great entertainment and relaxation. It revolutionizes the whole concept of the event tourism marketplace," De Carla Applewhaite said.  


The experience is described as an adults-only weekend with a combination of luxury accommodations, sea, sun, sand, fun activities, and a party vibe, hosted at the exclusive Ocean Two Resort in St. Lawrence Gap. 

Producer of Liv The Weekend, Orlando Newton says that the event originally was set for next year but believes the market is more than ready for such an innovative idea at present.


"Liv is all about an experience. . . . The present pandemic has made this event come to fruition even faster than we had first planned. This event was planned for 2021, we think that our community and marketplace is ready for this event and we are hoping to grow it into Liv Weekend or Liv Week within the next three years," Newton said.


With an expected occupancy of over 300 people for the weekend, the event hopes to reinvigorate the party and tourism scene in a way that is needed at this time.
